Highlights of 2016

A brief summary of my activities in 2016.
week 52
A podium place  at the Christmas Trail in my home village Sprundel.
I should have listened better to my body, instead of going to hard, but anyway… a podium place,  but terrible pain in my left thigh and abdomen now…

Fortunately I can have much rest this week.

week 51
Just a nice relaxing week, not too many kilometers.

week 50

Not too much kilometers this week, which is not necessary now.

week 48
This week still some more rest, after the hree bridges race.
Feel paiun in the  left, right, above and below!

week 47
Constructive week with the three bridges Ultra 65 km.
A very nice race with long straight roads, but unfortunately cold and foggy.
